Eclipse trick: Custom getter-setter

| | bookmark | email | 2 comments
I don't want to challenge R.J. but I feel this trick is quite interesting. During the last weeks I have found quite annoying to use the conventions of the projects I am contributing to, because they impose the usage of m_ and s_ notations and for a long time I have considered that this is a killer for the getter/setter generation in Eclipse. But no, it is not: you can configure Eclipse to consider some prefixes and suffixes and these will be removed from the generated getters and setters. Step by step: - Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Code Style - Variable type: Fields and add the m_ prefix - Variable type: Static fields and add the s_ prefix (if you really use getters/setters for static fields [blink/]. Congrats again to the guys developing Eclipse!
